The first book in the Anastasia Dark sequence. Who is the girl named Amy who has appeared at Will's school? And what does she want with him, the most talented trainee demon slayer in the country?


4. Girlfriend

Wills P.O.V

I headed for my favourite subject, history. The history of our world was pretty basic, we didn't know much beyond the first Demon wars, when the creatures that had since plagued our world had appeared. I knew that that year we studied the Demon wars in greater depth; we went back in time throughout history, last year had finished with the Diminishing. Everything in the past was with a capital letter. We entered the classroom, but this time Amy sat down next to me. Again. Looking at Jon, I could see jealousy written all over his face, and considered sticking out my tongue. I settled with a wink.

"What's your name?" she said, suddenly.

"um... uh, Wu... Will." I stuttered, OK, the girl was scarily cute, I don't normally stutter, but the way that she was looking at me. It was like being dunked in ice water. This girl was way out of my league, slim, but not too skinny, and her black hair was short, and framed her face. I guess that I didn't do a very good job of describing her before. She wore her uniform like it was a fashion statement, and I know that that normally doesn't work, but I'm telling you, Amy pulled it off.

"Hey, Wu... Will. I'm guessing that you know I'm Amy?" She ended her sentence with a question, probably to make sure that the conversation continued.

"I know who you are." Did that sound too snappy, like I didn't want to talk to her?

"I'm guessing you do," she gave a smile that had very little humour in it, "Anyway, I don't actually know what subject this is?" Another question, if only it wasn't one that required a one word answer.

"History. We're probably learning about the Demon wars, the teacher will explain it." I didn't use a one word answer!

"I hate that expression..." she muttered under her breath.

Confused, I asked her "What expression?"

"Demon wars" she said, sharply. "It should be called wholesale slaughter of our people by the enemy."

"I couldn't agree more!" At that point I didn't notice the vagueness in the words, our people, and the enemy, or if I did, I didn't see anything dangerous in it. 

Amy smiled at me, her body language suddenly relaxing. I took in her slim legs, her flawless skin. Her school shirt was a little big, revealing some cleavage, but not to the point that the teachers could comment on it. Her dark hair tumbled down to her shoulders, almost wavy, almost straight. For the first time I looked her in the eyes. Amber eyes. Beautiful eyes.

"Um, I've uh never seen eyes like yours before?" under my breath I cursed. That came out wrong.

"Oh, it runs in the family. Just a fluke."

I nodded, not trusting myself to speak to this mysterious girl.

"Do you have a girlfriend?" she started, and I looked at her and she was blushing. Did she like me?

"Eh no - not that I wouldn't like one." I said clumsily.

"If you'd like one then why don't you have one?" she queried, a half smile on her lips.

"Look, OK, stuff happened. I just don't think I'm ready to have another girlfriend." I stated. It took all my effort not to elaborate. I knew that that would just come off as attention seeking, but apparently it's in human nature to attempt to impress, or gain sympathy.

"I'm sorry..." her voice tailed off towards the end. "Was it a va- a demon." For some reason she corrected herself, but I was so lost in memories that I didn't notice.

"Yeah. I looked after her, made sure she was OK every single day of the holidays. She slept round at my house and everything but the last day we thought it would be safe. It wasn't. She was turned that night." I bowed my head, trying to keep the tears back.

"I shouldn't have brought that up." she murmured softly. Louder she asked "What was her name?"

"Celia. It was a long time ago." I was trying to persuade myself, I needed to persuade myself. I was definitely attracted to this girl, and Celia was gone. She would want me to move on, I'm sure of it.

I forced the words out, I needed to say them "Will you watch a flickr with me after school on friday?"

"I'd love to."

What have I gotten myself into this time?


Will and Amy... Everybody could see that coming. Anyway, more next chapter on Celia. I spent ages thinking about love triangle... Believe me. You are so going to see love triangle. On the off chance that you read this and enjoy it, read my other movella, falcon. It's more science fiction, but it's less of the whole demon thing. If you want other stuff from this world check out Blood Red Rose on Wattpad. It's set before this, but once this book progresses you'll understand where it's coming from more.

Keep on reading.
